Re: Is it time to disclose marching program COSTS?
Community support for the arts is great. Budgeting large amounts of district money for the arts is great. However, I think the problem lies in the trend of rising band fees... as soon as we start erecting financial barriers to inclusion for the sake of winning is when we are faced with an ethical dilemma.
Everyone knowing everyone else’s numbers won’t change a thing. These are local decisions. If a community chooses to support the arts more than another, that is their business.
